Hoffenheim & Bayer Leverkusen are both attacking sides and that makes it an easy pick backing both teams to score here.

Match preview 🖊
Hoffenheim has found it incredibly difficult to keep clean sheets this season with their last one coming on the 16th of February. Visiting Bayer Leverkusen knows that they need to win here to stay in the hunt for a top-four finish. In fact, Leverkusen’s last six Bundesliga away games all featured over 2.5 goals, and both teams scored in five of them. Hoffenheim has scored six goals in their last three home matches in the Bundesliga. Bet on an open, high-scoring game.
With the home side having only lost two of their last 19 but trailing Leverkusen by four points, we expect them to approach this positively and go on the attack.
Team news 📰
Nico Schulz, who was outstanding for Germany against The Netherlands providing two assists from left back, is suspended for this clash. Arsenal loanee Reiss Nelson is out with an injury.
For the visitors Leverkusen, Lars Bender should return from illness to start at right-back. Mitchell Weiser could switch to the left in this case, to replace the suspended Wendell. Manager Peter Bosz must choose between Chile international Charles Aranguiz and Austrian Julian Baumgartlinger for the defensive midfield role. Teenage sensation Kai Havertz is expected to continue pulling the strings behind the strikers.
